  • Staff Only
The earliest curricular offerings of Northwestern University's Traffic Safety Institute, later the Traffic Institute, are documented by this collection of course announcements, syllabi, and rosters of faculty and students. Also included are group photographs of course participants and scattered pieces of administrative and budgetary correspondence. A number of related items from traffic safety and traffic officer training programs offered through other institutions are found in the collection as well. Typically these programs featured faculty affiliated with Northwestern University or its Traffic Safety Institute. Curricular materials date between 1932 and 1939 and are arranged chronologically within one volume. Summary information on course offerings (names and dates of courses), 1935-1940, and rosters of graduates of Northwestern's Traffic Police Administration Course, 1936-1948, complete the series.
